to be a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures you're looking at. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday in benghazi, libya, that left four americans dead. including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in the last three decades and only the sixth in the entire history of american diplomacy. tonight we're learning that his death and the deaths of three of his staffers may have come not at the hands of a random mob of islamic fundamentalists who were riled up by a shadowy anti-muslim youtube film, instead, sources say that a pro-al qaeda group is the key suspect now and a senior u.s. official says american surveillance drones are expected to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also inves

with her employer, and i want to start with ian. you saw hundreds storming the u.s. embassy in cairo. who are these protesters exactly? how widespread is this anger? and what is the situation with the americans in the embassy since a oup of marines are there? >> reporter: well, anderson, the marine who is are there are stationed in part of the diplomatic mission to secure the embassy. e of the largest contingents of marines protecting a u.s. embassy in the world. but these protesters were predominantly islamist. they say it insults the profits, it called him a womanizer, a homosexual, someone who molests children, things that muslims would find offensive. so there was roughly 1,000 people out there. going and we saw a handful of people storm the embassy, perimeter, they tore down the american flag. security forces on the site. they did show up to separate the protesters from the embassy, but it was a bit late, later after the protesters were able to get in there. that's a question a lot of people are asking, is why the security forces didn't come soon enough. and egyptian officials are al
let's look at a little history. this is the u.s. hispanic population by place of birth. if you go back to 1970, nearly 9 in 10 latinos, hispanics living in the united states were born in the united states. only 14% came from outside of the united states. this is both legal and illegal immigrants. those foreign born. look at now. 63% born in the united states, 37% again, that's legal and illegal immigrants coming from outside the united states. that's been an interesting change in the last 30 plus, 40 years. here's an interesting figure. you hear a lot of complaints in the border states of course but if you go back through recent years, illegal immigration relatively static in terms of the numbers. according to the department of homeland security, 10.5 million came into the united states in 2005. in 2010 it was 11.6. 2011, 11.5. so still a high number, many would say that's way too high, but a relatively flat line, if you will, on the illegal immigration problem and again, if you go to some border states, they would call it a crisis. wolf? >> attitudes towards immigrants are changing as
that is. a senior law enforcement official telling fran townsend the fbi wanted the u.s. military to provide perimeter support in benghazi, protection, in other words, but that request was not granted. fran's a former white house homeland security advisor. she served in the george w. bush administration, currently she sits on the cia external advisory panel and recently visited libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. also joining us, former fbi assistant director, tom fuentes, who has extensive experience investigating attacks on americans overseas, and former cia officer, bob baer. so fran, so the fbi sought military protection to go into benghazi. why didn't they get it? >> well, the answer to that question, i think, is not really clear. so it's not unusual, when you want to set up a security perimeter, you may look to the host country. if the host country is unable or unwilling to provide it, we don't know what the answer to that is, y may ask if you think you need it for u.s. military support, but that's got to go through a process. it needs state department and nsc sup

in libya involving how well or how poorly the u.s. government handled its responsibility to protect them, involving government transparency or the lack of it and lastly involving ourselves. cnn has become part of the story and that's the last place i or anyone in this profeion ever wanto be. we as a program and cnn as a network have believed from the ginnin focus should be on four key points, onhe ing of ambassador christopher stevens and three others in benghaibya on 9/11, what the state department and others may have goadin their on uritysituationd what leading members of the government have said about circstances of the tragedy an whether their stements have lacked clarity or transparency, and of course, kled ese four dedicated americans. that's where we've always believed the focus should be. however, because cnn discovered ambassador stevens' seven-page journal in what remains of the consulate in benghazi three days after the attacknd b it became one source for some of our reporting, questions about the use and handling oft journal haveeen raised,s you probably heard. as you proba
tonight from the u.s. state department they're pulling more staffers out of the embassy in tripoli because of security concerns. also tonight, also security related, new details. they're coming in reaction to our exclusive reporting last night on how quickly officials actually suspected that the killing of four americans in benghazi was an act of terror, and how troubled the subsequent investigation into that deadly assault is turning out to be. today, 16 days after the attack, defense secretary leon panetta stated plainly what was obvious to many, including senator john mccain, who joins us shortly, almost from the beginning. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. >> the best we can tell, this is the first time any administration official has uttered the word "planned" to describe what happened. asked how long it took to reach his conclusion, secretary panetta said quote, it took awhile once information from benghazi came back. but keeping them honest, multiple so
interviews of the state department and u.s. government personnel who were in libya at the time of the attack. they have gotten as far as tripoli but never gotten to benghazi. they made a request that the crime scene be secured as we know from arwa damon's reporting and other public reporting, the state department, we don't know whether or not the state department put that request to the libyans and whether it was denied or what happened to. what we know for sure is the crime scene was never secured and the senior law enforcement official i spoke to said if we get there now it is not clear it will be of any use to us. the third and critical and astoonishing point to me is one of the things we have to do is question the individuals, the libyans have in custody to get to the bottom of this and understand what they are learning. in fact, they made that request with from the state department. that was denied by libya. so the fbi has to pass questions from the state department to the libyan government. they put the questions and you wait, sort of like a child's game of telephone, for tha informati

"360" and cnn have become part of the story. that is the last place i or anyone in this profession ever want to be. we as a program and cnn as a network have believed from the beginning that the focus should be on four key points, on the killing of ambassador christopher stevens and three others in benghazi, libya on 9/11, on what the state department and others may have known about the security situation the days and weeks leading up to their killing, on what leading members of the government have said about their circumstances of the tragedy and whether their statements have lacked clarity or transparency, and of course, on who killed these four dedicated americans. that's where we've always believed the focus should be. however, because cnn discovered ambassador stevens' seven-page journal in what remains of the consulate in benghazi three days after the attack and be
't decide which side they are on. this was an attack on u.s. soil. if they can't tell us who did it and why, the libyan government is on the wrong side. >> and mr. leak, you broke the story today in the daily beast that this was a terror attack. you say they new within 24 hours. it was in the intelligence community that not only pointed to al qaeda but they were able to pin point the location of one of the attackers but there were a number of clues if you will that were outside of the intelligen intelligence committee. they congratulated the attackers in bengazi. the date of the attack is another thing. there was intelligence coming in. intelligence sources say they located one attacker using social media. did they know his location? >> yes, but i'm -- i withheld details on that because the person as i understand is still at large. do we know if anyone has been targeted or arrested? >> at this point i have mixed signals. there were 50 people or so arrested by libyan authorities. it is unclear, but in terms of u.s. actions, nothing has been done at this point. you have talked to a number of
department security officers or u.s. military. the fbi got right in, checked what was missing, checked the weapons and everything else that was used in the take. i have never seen this since the takeover of our embassy in teheran in '79. it tells me, again, that libya is a precarious situation. the state department realizes that the fbi cannot fight its way in to a crime scene. the fbi has got to be secured when it arrives on the ground and there's obviously none. the libyans are not cooperating. if they are not letting the fbi talk to the people they have arrested, and frankly i think those people are probably the types, the usual suspects. they have nothing to do with the attack, but that's just my opinion. this is an investigation that cannot possibly, at this point, turn up very much useful. >> yeah, for libyans not allowing any access directly to the suspects, i mean, what does i that say to you? it doesn't portend well at all? >> not at all. it is the libyans they can't decide which side they are on. this is an attack on u.s. soil. it was an act of aggression and if they can't te
going back to the east africa embassy bombings in the late '90s, the "uss cole" in 2000. we understand how to do these. the fbi's got protocols about what does it look like when you have to deploy investigators and forensic folks to collect evidence overseas. so this is not the first time they've done it. they understand that in order to do that effectively, you have to have protection on the ground, you've got to have somebody who can do a perimeter. you ask in the first instance the host government to do that. if for some reason the libyan prime minister suggested to arwa they thought they could provide that protection safely, but even if u.s. officials had security concerns where they didn't think that was enough, the next step is to ask the united states military, will they and can they provide protection and to get -- request permission from the host government to allow them to come in, the u.s. forces, solely to protect the perimeter of the scene and the investigators while they are there. and best we can tell, we don't know if that's evehappened. >> so does it make sense to you,
